Two Different Tracks

On Friday, September 20th, 2019 from 6:30-8:00pm,  join us for our free community event.

Dr. Wesley Hill will explore "The Challenge of Spiritual Friendship for Single People". We recognize that the church can sometimes glorify families and marriage to an extent that may diminish singleness; Dr. Wesley Hill will be addressing the relational and individual intimacies that are important for those in the church community. This event is encouraged for both singles and married people to learn how to integrate Singleness and the Church.

We encourage leaders in the church, pastors, and therapists to our Saturday professional development to be equipped with practical tools to integrate faith and psychology as they lead others towards healing and wholeness. On Saturday, September 21st, 2019 from 9:00am-12:00pm, Dr. Wesley Hill will speak on practical ways to integrate faith and systemic thought on Christian singleness. It is our hope that from this event church leaders and clinicians will feel more prepared to assist singles towards relational wholeness in their respective communities.  

For clinicians, CE's are available. Upon registration, please note that you are wanting CE credit.
